The Compassionate Friends
The Compassionate Friends offers over 500 chapters around the country. In small towns and large cities, bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents meet together to talk, listen, share, and provide each other emotional support after the devastating death of a child. When you attend chapter sessions, you won’t find professionals running the meetings and giving advice. We are not therapists and we do not provide counseling. Everyone will be just like you – someone who is going through the natural grieving process.
As we meet together, we learn from each other through our shared experiences. You will find people attending the meetings of all ages from young adult to 70 and 80 year-olds. You will find people mourning the loss of an adult child and others who are mourning the loss of a child who never had an opportunity to take their first breath. You may find people whose child died 30 years ago and others with a loss so fresh their pain is measured in days and weeks.

New Hope Center for Grief Support - Parents of Hope
Navigating through grief after the death of a child is incredibly difficult, but you do not have to go through that process alone. As a peer support group, we want to give you a safe space to talk about your grief with others who have experienced a similar loss and help support you through the unique challenges you may be facing.
